Why is "los edificios son grandes" wrong?

I think big would be "grande," but huge is more on the caliber of "enorme." Huge generally implies a greater magnitude of largeness than big, as "enorme" implies a greater magnitude of largeness than "grande."

That's what I was wondering too, after I missed putting the word 'muy' in front of grandes; 'muy grandes' was listed as an acceptable alternative.

I guess I shouldn't have used "gigantes".
